    Should Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen move up to lead for “Modern Family”? I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this. On one hand, it’s kind of nice that the entire cast enters in the same categories. But on the other hand, they have a chance to win FOUR acting Emmys next year instead of just two.

    Hmm….

    Yes, if only to make room for other nominees.

    No, they have no more screen time than the other 4 actors. And besides I doubt that next year Modern Family would be able to win 4 acting awards anyway.

    I think Burrell and Bowen should stay in the supporting categories. I don`t consider either of them to be a lead on the show. If they did go lead, I think their chances of winning another emmy would be less. Even with the competition from other cast members, I think it is better for them to stay in supporting. I wouldn`t be to surprised if they did decide to switch categories however.

    Leaving aside the fact that is a tired topic to discuss…

    No they shouldn’t. This is an ensemble. Burrell had the same screentime as Nolan Gould this week, for example. I don’t even think he had more screen time in his winning submission this year than the other actors on that episode.

    Ugh, again?! If anyone is lead on MF it’s them, but afterall it’s an ensemble show and they will NEVER submit in a different category than their other castmates.

    Nope. The whole cast benefits from multiple submissions in the Supporting categories. They can use that as a strategy to spread the wins to the remainign Emmyless cast.

    I’ve always been a fan of the idea that some of them should go lead, but I don’t think Ty Burrell should.  My vote would be for Julie Bowen and Ed O’Neil.  It just feels easier on the system that way.  But I respect that the show is an ensemble and they want to all submit together.

    No they shouldn’t. Benito brought up a good point. Ty Burrell was in as much of the episode this week as Nolan Gould (who is undeniably supporting). The cast submitted in supporting the first year for a reason, and they shouldn’t and probably won’t move up to lead unless the entire cast does that like Friends.

    Yes. Though I don’t think either should expect a win (and going to go here a nomination though Ty has a better shot since that category is not that hot), but since they won and them having shown they are a cast that has no ego, I think they should definitly reshuffle the decks. And yes, Nolan Gould needs a nomination like yesterday.

    I think they’re fine staying put. Especially Julie Bowen, because Sofia Vergara desperately, desperately needs Bowen’s help to win. We know Vergara can’t be trusted to submit a good episode of her own, so maybe Bowen can submit one for her.

    They should all stay in supporting. They genuinely belong there plus strategically it could pay off big-time. I’d love it if the cast bands together and submits 4 strong Ed O’Neil episodes and two strong Sofia Vergara ones so the Pritchetts can win matching Emmys next year like the Dunphys did this year.

    I say they shouldn’t move. They won’t win if they move up to lead because they won’t have the benefit of extra tapes. And there’s a chance they could even be snubbed for noms, even though they have recognition for having won. Burrell would have to face Baldwin, David, Parsons etc. Bowen would have to face Falco, Fey, Linney, McCarthy, Plimpton, and Poehler, not to mention newbies like Dern, Deschanel, Dennings, Applegate etc. Also, when a show takes up half the supporting acting slots, why move? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    If they never want to win another Emmy for Modern Family, then yes, they should totally move into the lead categories.
